Bartlett Park is a public open space in Poplar in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets; its address is Upper North Street, London E14. It is located to the south of the Limehouse Cut waterway; the Lansbury Estate is to the south and east of the park. Its area is 4.95 hectares (12.2 acres).[1]

History[edit]

St Saviour's Church remains in the centre of park, surrounded by a single row of self-build housing.[2] The park named in honour of Prebendary Philip M. Bartlett, who died in 1958 and had been vicar of the Church for 39 years.[3] St. Saviour's was almost destroyed by fire on 25 May 2007, but the shell remains since it is a Grade II listed building.[4]

Tower Hamlets Council undertook a public consultation on regeneration of the park in May–June 2012.[5] The masterplan includes improved connections to the Limehouse Cut.[6]

Transport[edit]

London Buses Route 309 serves the park.
